We’re glad to see you again! The scene here is amazingly welcoming, something we were reminded of at the pizza dinner after yo-yo/juggling club. We found ourselves sharing tricks and laughter with some of KC’s finest before we even set foot in a toy store, which set a great tone that will carry on for the rest of tour.
Our first demo was at U.S. Toy – we had stopped there on the Heritage Tour and were excited to return, and as it turns out, the staff was pretty excited to see us as well. To make things even cooler, there were plenty of kids at the morning demo who were stoked to see yo-yo tricks (and learn some for themselves!). Good friends Justin & Blake also made it out and joined us for a delicious BBQ lunch.
The morning demo was great, but the afternoon demo was AWESOME! We had a great turnout of both seasoned players and excited spectators, and it was a wonderful time getting to share tricks with all of them. I’m positive that some of the kids that walked out with yo-yos will stick with it and become assets to the Kansas yo-yo community. Big thanks, also, to both the Kansas City yo-yo club and the Spring Hill High School yo-yo club for coming out and showing their support – the demo ended up turning into a miniature club meet of its own, and we had such a good time that we spent an extra hour and a half just hangin’ out. Definitely a sign of good things to come!
